This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Financial World

---

I'm going sans computer today so it will have to be another short post. Plus today is one of those what-was-I-thinking sort of theme. I have only watched 3 movies about the financial world so here they all are.

Wall Street (1987)
I remember nothing other than yeah it was an entertaining movie. Question - is the sequel worth a watch?
 
Margin Call (2011)
It follows an investment bank in a 24 hour period as they realise their assets are junk and tries to quickly sell them off before the rest of the world finds it too. Like it's so terrible...a lot of people made a lot of money selling junk. Anyway the movie was really good.

Big Short (2015)
It attempts to tell a story and explain the financial crisis to a layperson...which it does decently I think.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Animated Films Geared Towards Adults [Suggested by Brittani Burnham]

---


Today's theme is a suggestion from Brittani. I don't watch a lot of animated films so this is a tough week for me so I'm going to do a real quick one.

Persepolis (2007)
If you've read the graphic novel and like it, you'll probably like the movie too, it looks very much like the novel.
 
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
I don't remember much of the story other than I like it and that it is very Wes Anderson in it's quirkiness. If you like his movies, you'll probably like this one too.
 
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Another stop motion animation and it's also a musical. I love how it looks and the songs in this are pretty awesome as well.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is TMP Television Edition - High School

---




I still do enjoy high school series, they're light and fun and offers a break from some of the more gloomy serious dramas. Here are the ones I like past and present.

Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990–2000)
This was probably the first high school series I saw. I was very very young when I saw this, but I do remember liking it a lot. I actually didn't know it was on air for so long, I think I only saw it up until the end of high-school for the major characters.
 
The O.C. (2003–2007)
I love love the O.C. I saw the first season again recently, yes its soapy but I still love it. It was the series that introduced me to the San Diego Comic Con, and a few years later the con became this huge media machine. I also think it's the high-school series with the best soundtrack. I you haven't listened yet, go check it out on Spotify. ♫ C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A here we come !!!
 
Gossip Girl (2007–2012)
Totally soapy, but soo fun. Also geek me love that all its episode titles, other than the pilot, are fun twist on movie titles.

Degrassi: Next Class (2016 – )
I've never seen the other Degrassi series other than this new spinoff which is on Netflix and I really like it. It feels very current with its story lines, decent acting and has the most diverse cast than any of the high school series I've ever seen.

Riverdale (2017– )
While I don't love love it, I like that they took the Archie comic that we know and made it into small town mystery that's moody and gloomy. I just wish it's a little better written and performed. However, the mystery is interesting enough so I will keep on watching.

Bonus

Freaks and Geeks (1999–2000)  
I saw this again recently and it's such a pity that it was canceled just after one season because I think it really is one the best high school series. It's 80's setting was fun and the show itself is often very funny.
